As expected, Apple will also announce a new range of Apple Watch. According to Mark Gurman, the 8 Series will be available in three variants. The company would bet on a cheaper SE edition, a standard version, and a more robust model aimed at extreme sports enthusiasts. Previous rumors are mainly based on new sensors dedicated to health.
The American brand should also lift the veil a new generation of AirPods Pro. According to rumors circulating on the web, the headphones will largely resume the design of their predecessors. Apple would still bet on a short auction, which incorporates the microphone. This iteration would again have a Lightning port. No USB-C on the program for this generation.

This is the same SoC as the iPad Air 4 and iPhone 12.
For more demanding users, Apple would market two new iPad Pros before the end of the year. The brand will offer two screen sizes: 11 and 12.9 inches. The performance will be provided by the Apple M2 chip. Gurman specifies that the iPads will be compatible with the new Stage Manager feature of iPadOS 16. He also prophesies the arrival of a 14- or 15-inch iPad in 2023 or 2024.
New Apple TV and the return of HomePod
Apple does not intend to stop there. The Silicon Valley giant is currently in development a new Apple TV. Powered by an A14 chip and an additional GB of RAM, the case would support Apple’s foray into video games. Thanks to tvOS 16, Apple TV should deliver ” versusadditional playing skills “presumably for the titles included in the Apple Arcade subscription.
Tim Cook’s company is also preparing the big return of the HomePod. The fence wouldn’t be out until next year. It would be powered by an S8 chip, like the Apple Watch, and would benefit from a new multi-touch compatible touch screen. Specifically, you can use multiple fingers to interact with the plate. For the record, the first version of the connected speaker was released in 2018. Faced with disappointing sales, Apple has therefore focused on the more affordable HomePod mini.
